Title: Funny Games
Author: Rated: R
In this provocative and brutal thriller from director Michael Haneke, a vacationing family gets an unexpected visit from two deeply disturbed young men. Their idyllic holiday turns nightmarish as they are subjected to unimaginable terrors and struggle to stay alive.
At their lakeside vacation home, Ann, George and their son have unexpected visitors: two well-spoken, well-bred young men wearing polite smiles and preppy sportswear. The visitors want to play a game. “You bet that you’ll be alive tomorrow at 9:00, and we bet that you’ll be dead. OK?” As the terrorized family fights to survive, each plan is thwarted, each option closed, each hour closer to what could be the last.
